We have now sold our house in France (Acte de Vente was March 12th). The buyer has paid his share of the Taxe de Fonciere as part of the sale. This leaves us paying our monthly prelevements for the rest of the year, and we would really like to just make a lump sum payment and close our french bank account down. I've looked in my gouv espace online and can't find any way to do this? Anyone know if this is possible?
thanks
David

No unnerstand.
When you sell, the normal procedure is that the buyer pays the proportion of TF from the date of the acte de vente (17.03-31.12 2017). You should therefore just cancel that standing charge.
On the other hand, the taxe d'habitation is payable for the whole year by whoever was in residence on 1 January. In this case, you should contact the Trésor Public explaining that you want to pay the balance due for TH (17.03-31.12 2017) and provide them with a copy of the Attestation (de vente) which the notaire may or may not have given you already.

I disagree, Mad : normally now the buyer pays the vendor the proportion of the TF at the Notaire's, as Datz says, based on last year's TF.
Datz, the final bill for this year won't be known until it's issued in the Autumn and you will be responsible for it. Since your monthly payments won't necessarily have covered it you'll need to keep your account open.

The first bill the new owner will get is for the following year.

So cancelling the standing charge is indeed the right course? And Datz will be liable for 25% of any excess at the end of the year?

Where I got confused originally is that you are always paying in arrears. So payments made in 2017, are in fact for TF calculated for 2016. So I have to continue paying prelevements into 2018 to cover Jan - March 2017.

Yes, best to keep paying the monthly sums, then at the end of the year you won't have a huge shock. Then close the account.....or keep it open with a little in it if you think you might ever need a French current account again. That way you won't have the hassle of opening a new one in the future, possibly as a non-EU resident...???
